An­ar­chists eye Obama visit

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

As self-styled an­ar­chists scale up their activities in Athens, an­ar­chist group Rou­vikonas (Ru­bi­con) yes­ter­day called for protests dur­ing a sched­uled visit to Greece on Novem­ber 15 by US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama.

“Let us give the pres­i­dent of the USA the wel­come that he de­serves,” the group said in a state­ment posted on­line. “Submission, pas­siv­ity comes at a cost,” it said. “Faced with the worst that is to come, submission means col­lec­tive sui­cide. Ev­ery­one on the streets. Sol­i­dar­ity is the weapon of the peo­ple.”

Rou­vikonas has been linked to many acts of van­dal­ism on pub­lic prop­erty, in­clud­ing smash­ing Athens metro ticket ma­chines and a paint at­tack on the Turk­ish Em­bassy.

Chris­tiana Hatzi­giorgi, di­rec­tor of the CT scan depart­ment at Aghia Sophia Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal in Athens, is seen at a pre­sen­ta­tion of an MRI sim­u­la­tor pro­duced by Bayer Hel­las in co­op­er­a­tion with the Floga par­ents as­so­ci­a­tion of chil­dren with cancer. The de­vice is meant to fa­mil­iar­ize young pa­tients with the process.
